Five new quill mite species of the genus Torotrogla Kethley, 1970 (Acari: Syringophilidae) are described from North American passerines: T. aphelocoma sp.n. from Aphelocoma californica (Corvidae) and T. cardinalis sp.n. from Cardinalis cardinalis (Cardinalidae) in Texas; and T. coccothraustessp.n. from Coccothraustes vespertinus (Fringillidae), T. cyanocitta sp.n. from Cyanocitta stelleri (Corvidae), and T. piranga sp.n. from Piranga ludoviciana (Thraupidae) in California. A key to females of all known Torotrogla spp. and a table with their host associations and distributions are given.
